House-Hasson Hardware named Wayne Walls vice president of operations in charge of warehousing and transportation for its 450,000 square-foot Knoxville, Tenn., operation.

“With technology constantly changing, Wayne’s experience and knowledge makes him the right person to head this vital area of service to our dealers,” Steve Henry, House-Hasson president and CEO, said in a prepared statement.

Walls has more than three and a half decades of experience in logistics, most recently serving as the regional general operations manager at True Value Company.

“We’re focussed on dealer profitability, and everything we do in our warehouses has to be a best practice to ensure we’re meeting our goal of serving our independent hardware store and lumberyard dealers,” Henry said.

Walls has experience in engineered labor standards, warehouse management systems, and warehouse layout. The Knoxville warehouse is House-Hasson’s largest facility.

“The company gained this reputation by thinking, planning, and working to improve its dealers’ ability to sell to their customers,” Walls. “We’ll continue to make improvements in our processes, procedures, and technology to benefit our dealers. We win when they win.”
